Masculine Cards- Lavinia Style

Masculine cards can be a challenge but with Lavinia's gorgeous nature stamps and all their tips on how to use your mix media products (distress inks, jell plate, alchohol inks) it really is very easy!

Have a look at this beautiful set of six. All created using same method (jelly plate and distress inks) but each having slightly different tones of color.

I found Vicki Boutins Foundation paper to be the best results but do experiment with what you have.

Sentiments from photo play "say it" sets- again a huge bang for your buck with these stamp/die sets.

Added sewing and a few fresh pink pearls for the win!

Complete list of products below with links to store if in stock. If not in stock please reach out to Pear Tree Treasures and Monica will assist.

Let me know what you think :)

Lavinia Products: Monica tells me the Lavinia stamps she had in stock were so popular they sold out! Good news is she has more on route. In the mean time the inks are fabulous! Stamps I used: Ducks, Small Stag; Red Pine Small (the other 2 smaller trees were extra small from my stash)

Distress Inks: Bundled Sage; Speckled Egg; Dried Marigold; Wild Honey; Hickory Smoke; Peeled Paint
Tools: Stamping Platform of some kind for repetitive stamping in same spot. Pear Tree has this one; 4" Round Jell pad- Pear Tree has a 5 x 7 which could also work, you would just have a different design- FYI I had my round one for over a year and first time using. I generally go to my 5x7; Spray bottle; Glass Mat- makes clean up so easy!

Other stamps/Dies: My most favorite are the "Say it" collection by Photo play!

Embellishments: Pink Fresh Pearls 
Embossing powder: Used with the sentiment stamps
